Poem from Eddie Awusi

Island Of The Simpletons 
I came upon an island of the simpletons,
who knew nothing of the whims, caprices
and hobnobs of the civilized world
Neither are they governed by idiosyncrasies of laws
nor by the vain office of a ludicrous crown
they ply their daily affairs with kids gloves
hardly upsetting the status quo
Having tasted the obnoxious ways of modern society
the indecency of  deceits and self righteousness
I marvelled at their simplicity
